Partners in Research

Research plays an important role at CSE, where our research activities cover a broad range of topics. To learn more about research in CSE, visit our research areas page and read recent news stories that report on research.

In addition, there are a number of research centers and labs at CSE with which corporate partners can interact with and/or support.

The U-M Business Engagement Center can help industry in making a number of types of connections, including for research collaborations and technology transfer.

The College of Engineering also provides resources that can help to facilitate corporate connections to CSE research.

Sponsoring research

Research support provides an opportunity to connect with faculty on their area of expertise and interest. These direct connections can provide important insight into the future of a particular area, can help companies recruit students with the best skills to meet their needs, and develop a network of contacts that can assist when engaging on campus. Contact us for additional information.

Donating equipment

Equipment donations are a great opportunity to enable faculty to utilize your equipment and build relationships. Often these donations facilitate research and activities that were not previously possible. To explore this opportunity, contact a CSE lab director or the Department.
